The Coming to Ferguson curriculum.
This curriculum has been a vision of ours since November, 2014 and after lots of work and help from many people, it is published and out in the world for anyone to use!
From Ethan Vesely-Flad:
On August 9, 2014, after Mike Brown, Jr. was shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, an uprising began. In the weeks and months following his death, many people have traveled to Ferguson with good intentions — yet some have ultimately done a great deal of damage.
The “Coming to Ferguson: Building a Nonviolent Movement” curriculum, released at the occasion of the one-year commemoration of Mike Brown’s murder, is designed to help you think intentionally and intensively about whether or not to come to Ferguson — and if you do, how to understand your role, your preconceptions and biases, and how to provide solidarity that is helpful and not hurtful.
Developed by the Deep Abiding Love Project, with the support of the Fellowship of Reconciliation.
